Tessellations

A tessellation is pattern of shapes that fit perfectly together. It is when you cover a surface with a pattern of flat shapes so that there are no overlaps or gaps.

 

Regular Tessellations : a regular tessellation is a pattern made by repeating a regular polygon. For a regular tessellation, the pattern is identical at each vertex!

 

Semi-regular Tessellations : a semi-regular tessellation is made of two or more regular polygons. The pattern at each vertex must be the same!

 

Other Tessellations : There are also "demiregular" tessellations, but mathematicians disagree on what they actually are!
